your numbers for the parade may be accurate from last year. the number in attendance have dropped since the GAIF took the parade over due to lack of quality and number of bands appearing. However, the numbers of the festival are highly inflated. Where do they come up with these numbers anyhow? Just be realistic, this area hasnt seen 80,000 for ANY event ever. Maybe they shouldn't count the turnstyle clicks and just announce how many tickets were sold. I think you would find a more accurate count. the attendance is mostly people from this area. people aren't flocking in from all over the world to attend a second hand festival that alot of bands will not play for. in reality they are attracting about 35/40,000 people.
Your really are a jackass

You really are clueless and know nothing of what you spew. It would be wise for you to just to keep your stupidity to yourself.

Easy there son, sounds like you don't want anyone to question the attendance numbers? One must wonder why.

Anyway, I think bringing in Russ Brooks is a slap in the face to us all. This is obviously a favor in return for Brooks advocating as UFD Chief in support of Sullivans Varick St. quagmire. I suppose its no surprise, the Common Council of NY's most corrupt and dysfunctional city is perfectly suited to perpetuate the charade.

In that light, Brooks is a superb choice as Grand Marshall of Utica's St. Patricks Day charade.

Really, Matt dosen't draw a annual salary from the proceeds? Either you are very stupid or just one of his few followers. No accoutablity of funds, no transparancy of anything. Eveyone is becoming aware that this hole in the ground is permanent. I have been told that the origin of this idea was started at a hibernian meeting. This group must be disgusted with Matt and his lack of integrity and honesty regading.

Yay! GREAT ATTITUDE no wonder you city is the laughingstock of the country. Have a riot on your "Big Day" as half of uterus dresses up like morons and walks down the pothole ridden streets waving at the other half of the bottomfeeders there.

Sounds like "spectacular" entertainment for people with that ultra-low utican threshold for excitement and low standards.

The DWI Fake Cop and the DWI Fake firemen leading the big hoooplah hero brigade of do nothings playing "look at me look at me" because they CARE to be the center of the downs universe's attention?

Your attitudes are why most normal people can't stand you and work against you. Not that you notice LMAO!
